Rosie and Alex are destined for each other, and everyone seems to know it but them. Childhood friends, then high school buddies, then long-distance confidantes, they barrel forward with their lives on sometimes parallel, occasionally intersecting, and often divergent paths. Yet the paths are always there, well-trod and deep.
Just when it seems that Alex and Rosie might be together forever, everything goes wrong: Alex gets the news that his family is leaving Dublin and moving to Boston. Devastated, the two make plans to apply to colleges in the U.S. She gets into Boston University, Alex gets into Harvard, and everything is falling into place. But on the eve of her departure, Rosie receives news that changes their lives forever. Her dreams for college, Alex, and a glamorous career are dashed as Rosie stays in Dublin while Alex pursues a medical career and a new love in Boston.
But destiny is a funny thing, and in this novel, structured as a series of clever e-mails, letters, notes, and a trail of missed opportunities, Alex and Rosie find out that fate isn't done with them yet. Delightfully unexpected and romantic, Love, Rosie is a novel of enormous heart that will keep listeners laughing and guessing until the very last word.

Good simple read!
Don't buy the audiobook, actually read it. The whole book is written as emails, ims, and letters that let you see everyones point of view. It makes the book really unique and more interesting. The relationship between Alex and Rosie lasts their whole lifetime and it would be amazing to have a best friend like that. It is way too clear they belong together. The only thing I did not like about this book is to me the climax was at the very end and it kind of just left it way too open. Great for the beach or the airport.
This book is SO good, I would recommend it to any female out there. I wouldn't pay this much for it though: if you want my advice, buy the book from the bookstore and that way you'll be saving yourself a lot of $$$. But it's an absolute masterpiece!
